Filing New York State Unemployment Insurance Claims

N.Y. Unemployment Insurance Claims: The State is working to alleviate the significant pressure the influx of unemployment claims has created on the workforce system. 

Therefore, the New York State Department of Labor has just released a new schedule for individuals filing new Unemployment Insurance Claim by phone or web. As a reminder the 7 day waiting period has been waived.

The day you file is based on the first letter of your last name, and filing later in the week will not delay payments or affect the date of your claim. Claims are effective on the Monday of the week of filing: • A-F: Monday • G-N: Tuesday • O-Z: Wednesday • If you missed a filing day, claim on Thursday or Friday.

The Governor has also announced an agreement has been reached with the Legislature that: • Guarantees Job Protection and Pay for New Yorkers Quarantined as a Result of Novel Coronavirus • Adopts Comprehensive Paid Sick Leave Proposal • Provide Two Weeks Paid Leave for Quarantined State Workers • Drive-Through COVID-19 Mobile Testing Facility Opens Today in Nassau County, Suffolk County, Rockland County and Staten Island • Outreach to Retired Nurses and Doctors to Supplement Medical Personnel at Hospitals - Part of Governor's Hospital Capacity 'Surge' Efforts • Directs Greater NY Hospital Association and Healthcare Association of NYS to Work with 1199 SEIU to Develop Plan to Create Drop-In Child Care and Expand Child Care Facilities at Hospitals to Ensure Child Care for Hospital Workforce
